Peter Gammons: D-backs are in a decent position on Black Friday

What Diamondbacks’ owner Ken Kendrick and President Derrick Hall need to remember is that where the Diamondbacks have been the last decade has not been a long nightmare. They actually won the National League West in 2007, beat the Cubs in the Division Series, then lost out on the World Series that season when they […]

Peter Gammons: Postseason bullpen management proves more crucial than ever

Don’t even try to explain bloody drones and seven relievers to win one game, or how Clayton Kershaw can save one game and come back 48 hours later and throw seven shutout innings in another, or how the two best regular season teams in the American League could  not win a division series game. It […]

Newberg: Triumph-virate.

It was a night of three’s. All three Rangers pitchers were outstanding, particularly starter Martin Perez (7-4-2-2-0-2, 60 strikes out of 79 pitches, first-pitch strikes to 20 of 27 Angels), making a strong statement — at least at the moment — that the club could do worse than deploying Number 33 as its Number Three in the ALDS. Three […]

Peter Gammons: Orioles pushing for top spot, rest is key for Tanaka and Maeda

Nothing seems to add up, but it doesn’t matter. Only three pitching staffs in the American League have fewer quality starts, or a higher starters’ earned run average than the Orioles. They have one pitcher who has won nine games. Wednesday night in Fenway Park their starting lineup against Rick Porcello had only three hitters […]
